One person’s garbage is another one’s gold. Meet the innovators who are responsible for keeping tons of reusable materials out of the landfill, and experience how waste is transformed into valuable products through creative re-use and recycling.
This tour includes visits to model places that refer to Recycle, Replace, Reduce. Sample places could be: a transfer station, Urban Ore, Altamont Landfill, Omega Salvage, and other innovative models of re-use and sustainability.
